I won't be traveling to Minnesota again for a few more weeks, so that's nice. I've been doing pretty good lately with coming up with weekly meal plans and eating at home rather than going out. We've had some delicious stuff. I made chicken speidini one night, and a marinated/grilled flank steak another night. I haven't figured out this week's meals yet though.

I watched a shameful number of "extreme couponing" episodes last week. First off, those people are completely crazy. Second, it has inspired me to clip a few coupons and pay attention to what's on sale a little more. We'll see how long this inspiration lasts. I can, however, guarantee that there will be no food stockpile here. Good for my sanity, bad for the zombie apocalypse.

Flooding is getting pretty bad up in Atchison County. Fairfax is up away from the river, but a lot of people live or farm closer to the river. The town that we'd exit at from the interstate is evacuating tomorrow: http://stjoechannel.com/fulltext-news/?nxd_id=207537 My cousin posted some video of a road near her house washing out. It sounds like some pretty rough times up there. At least at this time, the Tarkio river isn't flooding, so Fairfax itself should be just fine, including the water supply there.

This weekend was a lot of movie fun. We saw Red at Tim and Tiffany's movie night, then Super 8 yesterday afternoon. I think I have Brent convinced to go see Company with me tomorrow since that's the last day it's playing in theaters. I enjoyed watching Super 8, but some of the special effects were way over the top for what the movie was trying to be. I found it really irritating, and in my opinion, the movie needed a little more subtlety to fit in with the retro vibes it was going for.

In house news, the AC is working marvelously now on both floors. We are able to keep a constant comfortable 76 degrees without the condenser running continuously. I just ordered a diaper genie to help contain litter box smells and encourage frequent scooping. We'll see how that works.
